Millis, Massachusetts – Radio Frequency Company has launched a new generation of Macrowave microwave foam driers for glued laminated foam.
The firm said it has several customers in the polyurethane foam sector and the system is ‘capable of drying water-based glues used in the construction of foam laminations up to several feet thick.’
The company adds that microwaves heat the material where the concentration of water is the greatest so wet glues are heated and dried without directly heating the cured foams and preventing overheating.
Radio Frequency has process development labs which feature simulations of its microwave and conventional heating of real heating conditions. This can be used to establish process parameters for commercial use. Customers can also lease equipment while conducting in-plant Sottrials, the firm adds.
